Garrold (5343) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Can. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Deep orange. Light haze. Thin, sticky, white head. Nose has jammy, spicy hop. Notes of ripe orange. Hint of woody herb, maybe. Sweet, soft toffee malts behind that. Taste is initially sweet and toffeeish, turning light, fruity, resinous bitter. Smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Shortish, light bitter finish. Nice one.

Hazy appearance. Very hoppy aroma and great strength. Nice bite on the palate. Bready citrus taste. All in all very acceptable.

Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Glowing crystal-clear amber with a thin white head. Tropical notes up front, a friendly warming caramel middle then pine in the mildly bitter finish. A little too much Cascade for my personal preference by the finish, but there’s no denying that this is a very tasty and well-balanced brew and well worthy of it’s high score on this site. Had it just after the very good and quite similar Hilden Mill Street, and this was just a little step ahead on all counts.

Sigmund (7662) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2016
Cask halfpint at the Brewery Shades, Crawley. 5.7%. Golden color, white head. Distinct hoppy aroma, notes of citrus and pine. Refreshing hoppy flavour, tingling fruit (esp. citrus) and pine needles. Good beer.

Scopey (15010) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2012
Keg at Craft Beer Co. It pours clear straw yellow, with a large, fluffy white head. The nose is leafy, grass, floral, lemon and fresh pine. The taste is lemon-lime, resin, hay, pine, leaf, grass, straw and floral, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp, dry and refreshing.

BenH (3436) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Keg at bow. Yellow with white head. Pungent hoppy aroma, grapefruit, fruity, slight cheese. Similar taste with a sweet caramel malt backbone. Sweet with a very bitter finish. Pretty good

Keg at The Bow Bar. Pale gold with white head. Great nose. Strikingly not citrus but very hoppy.m tropical notes on the flavour. A hop celebration.

On tap at CP&K. Light haze on this gold beer. Little white head. Light crisp palate. Trace of creamy malt. Mild tropical fruits with tinned peaches most noticeable. Nice contrast of bitterness at the end. Minerally crisp finish. Decent.

berkshirejohn (6534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Cask at the William Webb Ellis (JDW), Twickenham. Pale amber with a tight white head; aroma of apricot jam; starts with some fresh leafy hops, then a honeyed fruity sweetness, then the hops kick back in again with a sustained, prickly, drying finish. Good stuff.
